Connecticut Basement Systems Case Studies: Basement Waterproofing in Stamford, CT

Friday, October 7th, 2016 by Danielle Lariviere


This Stamford, CT home's basement was in bad shape. They suffered so much water damage that it was pooling in the corners near their heating systems and piping. Black mold was infesting every wall, and chances are, more would have formed if this problem hadn't been taken care of. Mold is not only unsightly, but it is also the cause of many health ailments, including respiratory problems. It not only made the basement dangerous, but the family was not able to fully take advantage of the space, wasting half of their home's square footage. Thankfully, this homeowner gave us a call at Connecticut Basement Systems to come out and give their basement just what it needed!


After our waterproofing expert Don Godbout came and drew up a game plan on how to allow this basement a longer, healthier life, we got right to work! For those damp and moldy walls we installed our CleanSpace Water Vapor Barrier. This is a 25-year warranted vapor barrier that withstands rips and tears. It is also mold and mildew resistant, which is perfect for a typically moisture-ridden environment.

After we took care of their problematic walls, we fixed the mold and moisture issue. We installed out SaniDry XP Dehumidifier, an industry leading dehumidifier that cleans the air as it filters. It keeps humidity levels below 50 percent, because mold usually needs above this number to survive. This will help reduce allergens in the air, and made the space much more healthy and safe for the family.

Lastly, we installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump to handle any water that might enter into the basement. Our sump pump is the only one of it's kind, and works constantly to keep your area dry. It runs of its own backup battery so if your power were to ever go out in a storm where flooding is very likely, it automatically will keep running.
